Generate a "no-code" checkout link
In addition to Helio checkout links, you can embed Helio Pay components directly into your own websites, apps or checkout flow.
Merchants track all incoming sales (as well as outgoing transactions when paying via Helio) on the dashboard as well as a drill-down view by selecting Transactions from the left hand nav.
Each transaction has an associated receipt including all relevant customer details. Transaction data can be exported via CSV, automated into a Google Sheet or accessed and integrated into any system via our API. We offer "Webhooks" to developers to listen and build workflows around real-time events.
Manage your Payments from the dashboard or select Pay Links / Pay Streams / Invoices from the left hand nav. You can edit, duplicate, disable (and re-enable) and share payments.
